Cool little article... Watching the highlights of his hat trick against Carolina gave me goosebumps.. 4 years later. wow.

I hope the Penguins are able to keep him.

Malkin received a massive chess set for his birthday last year and you’ll often find him huddled over the board across from Ivanov in their basement, where a signed Troy Polamalu jersey hangs on the wall.


thanks for sharing. I knew he like Troy Polamalu; his admiration real.
I didn't know about him playing Chess. Evgeni ; feels intense and deeply. Still waters... run deep.

Funny to learn how his particpation in the Car commercial came to be.

We’ve looked at some phenomenal players so far, ranging from great goal scorers (Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos), to great playmakers (Sidney Crosby, Pavel Datsyuk), to players of great size and strength (Jaromir Jagr, Jarome Iginla). The last player on our list combines all three of those attributes.


And we have three of these seven players. :shock:

I think the reason people want to trade him is for salary cap-related reasons, not because Malkin isn't playing well.

Malkin's not going anywhere.
If they need to dump a high salary, James Neal will be plying his trade elsewhere.
